    Default British WW2 Helmet #2. Is it Paratroopers?

    Hi Forum.
    I am not a collector of WW2, I really only collect Weaponry.
    This Helmet was bought into my friends shop last week along with the other Helmet Ive just posted.
    So the question is, is it a Paratroopers or Motorcyclists?
    Ive read various other posts and I think it is a Paratroopers, however would value some feedback.
    I will also add pictures if required.
    Many thanks in anticipation.

    Yes looks like a nice G&S made para helmet, dated 1943. How much does he want for it?

    Hes asked me to clarify exactly what it was and so as of yet he hasnt told me a price.

    Are you going to tell him? I would say it was a post-war motorcyclists hemet, pay him $50, grab the helmet and RUN LIKE HELL

    I will tell him, the shop does provide me with the odd Sword coming through its door so I wont be trying to rip him off.

    Well said Paddy, Im somewhat surprised by Robs comments, in his words "Bad form", i daresay you and your friend will be able to strike a reasonable deal on this very nice Para lid without any underhanded dealings especially when dealing with a friend

    Someone lost his rattle in the crib somewhere I think. Sorry about that, I promise I won't make any more jokes, I don't want to get banned for having a sense of humour.

    That is one nice para lid with leather chinstraps.I think these show up alot less than the ones with webbing chinstraps.
    I can only dream of the day someone brings one of these to me for sale!

    Value?500?600?more?......

    I love a sense of humour Rob, i m one of the guys who try to make light out of everything, but normally if i make a comment like that i would follow it with a LOL, it can be construed as a serious remark as our member did and replied, plus i dont have a rattle ive got a hanging mobile and the batteries have run down
    cheers Dave

    I wish I could buy one at that price, a G&S would probably go for 1200- 1500 if not a bit more. Rob, that's exactly what I would have said & like you with a twinkle in your eyes.
